Judgment comes from above

Dear Editor:What kind of a community do we have when there are people who will jump at any opportunity to write to our newspaper and mindlessly and harshly chastise a man not yet proven guilty?I wonder if Robin Goldberg has ever stepped foot out of her high society of wealthy friends to meet a person like Brent Phillips [Letters, April 6]. Either way, does she really know him well enough to set such an insensitive judgment on him? No one really knows if he is guilty of what he has been accused, and no one will, no one but Brent really knows. Whatever verdict is found in a court of law, in the end, the only judgment Brent deserves is the judgment he gets from above. Not what he receives from a judge, from this judgmental, nosy community, or from anyone else who decides to write a nasty letter in some paper.To Brent: You have changed many lives in your preaching. You are God’s tool in this community. You will be in my prayers. “Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.” – Confucius. Amanda ChristianAspen
